Transcript (Continued) WHO IS RIGHT ABOUT T hJ N that and how ihey work in tbat respect. 1/r. Bogolepov. In some eif the top- secrel le-tte-r- we received in Moscow frnm the Soviel Embassy in Washington, I remember reading the report aboul the assignment which was given to the Soviel Embassy in Washington to use ii- influence with foundations I mentioned before in order to gel into ihis country, I mean the I'nited Steele-, some members of the Communist parties of -um,- Latin-American countries which otherwise wen- unable to gel American visas. The li-t of the students was for- warded I" th,- Soviel Embassy, e-\ide-nil\ —I don't know quite how lhe operation wei- done evidently through the Comintern people — perhaps through the American Communisl party nr through the Soviet representative in South America countries I don I know how it was done, hut anyhow iln- Soviel Embassy was in charge In try tn influence lhe American government, through the foundations, lo give fellowships to the people from Latin \merica, which were members of the local Communist party and, of course, trained Soviet agents. That is known to me from our secrel files how this operation weis 1/r. Keele. Thai wa- pari of it. I take it. the- program which was worked nut 1/r. Bogolepov. Theit is right; yes. 1/r. Keele (continuing): Which was worked out in Moscow ? 1/r. Bogolepov. That is right. 1/r, Keele. Did vnu have' any opportunities other them iln- one invitation •" become a fellow nr receive ;i scholarship? Diel vmi receive emv either opportunities 1" leilk tn nr talk with or address societies, \merican societies or societies lhat had branches in America? 1/r. Bogolepov. During my work for lie- Sievi.-t government, you mean? 1/r. Keele. Yes; during that time. BROOKINGS INSTITUTION HELPFUL 1/r. Bogolepov. A i'-. For example. I was working nn a projeel connected wilh iln- German reparations and allied debts, ami 1 know thai one of lhe reputed American scientific organizations in Washington was also working in the -.mu- field, ll weis the' Brookings Institution, so I have written a letter in m\ capacity of a member of the Sn\i<-| Foreign Office asking them fnr giving me the documents they have, and immediately I received in a very polite form and very promptly all I need, a bunch of documents and papers. Thev were not. oi ceiur-e-. any secrel documents. 1 would tell you, thai were sent. There was official publications, a re sult of the American research of the problem. All I want to say is that in my capacity a- a member of the Soviet Foreign Office I always meet a very kind and receptive answer frnm the- American or- ganizations which I addressed from time to time. That is just one example. After I was able to desert the Soviel ceiuse. and when I came In the- Wesl after ihe end of the war. I make myself -nine effort tn contact lhe same organizations. Carnegie- Endowment, emd Rockefeller, emd Brookings, ami Guggenheim, emd a lol of other-, whom I have written in rather a naive mood thai now I am not under duress and pressure, now I am again myself, without an obligation to help with tin- knowledge I have about the Soviel I nion, it- sub- versive activities, real aims, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. 1 started to make m\ applications and appeals in 1946, I'M", writing llu- letters. The result was always negative . . . Wr. Keele. To what do you attribute that. Air. Bogolepov? I am talking now aboul the resistance lhat vou find to any attempts to work with the same organizations which invited you I" work with them at lhe time whin vmi were wilh ihe Soviet government. What is th.- cause fnr lhat or the reason? 1/r. Bogolepov. What is the cause? I am much afraid iheil what is happening with mc and wilh hundreds of oilier Russian refugees from lln- Soviel I nion is just a kind of revenge for llu- work which I have- dime myself when I was wilh the Soviel government. 1/r. Keele. Revenge on the part of whom? I mean, whn i- taking oul this revenge? 1/r. Bogolepov. Sn in say, I am hit by myself, fnr while winking fnr tin- Soviet government I was obliged against my will I wei- obliged to help lhe infiltration of the pro-Communists eiml pro- Soviel idea- iii the brain- of the \\ estern people, emd when I come here myself I iu-i ine-e-i iln- results nf thi- wink. Whal I didn't know, what amazed me— 1/r. Keele. Meev I interrupt vnu fnr a moment? You mean hy thai, as I un- derstand il. that having helped carry out the- plan of infiltration when you were with the Soviel government, and that plan having succeeded, In -nun- extent, nnw when you come here and try lo work wilh those organizations you are met hv the resistance from those who have been infiltrated through your previous efforts? Mr. Bogolepov. That is right; that is exactly what I meant, ye- . . . REPORT OF THE FUND FOR THE REPUBLIC (Continued from Page 3) suit- the Foundation had in mind, the Foundation would make a large lumpsum appropriation for ils support. It was understood that, within these general terms, the directors of the new corporation were lo feel free to work nul their own policies ami lo make such greuils as they thought proper, without further reference to the Ford Foundation. Pursuant to these decisions. The Fund for ihe Republic weis incorporated with a Roard of Directors of ils own in December, 1952. In February. 1955.. the Ford Foundation appropriated SI 1,000,- 000 additional for the Fund. At thai lime the Fund assumed a completely independent sleilus. The Fund has not asked the Foundation to approve the policies of the Fund; the Foundation has nol sought to exerl influence over the- Fund. The relation of the Fund to the Foundation is lhe same as that of any other independent beneficiary oi the Foundation. In May. 1051k Clifford 1'. Case, a member of Congress from New Jersey, was elected president of lhe Fund. Air. (lei-.- look office in August. 1951V He resigned lo accept nomination to lln- Senate April 1. 1951. I succeeded him on June 1, 1954. GENERAL POLICIES wei- f-- Thc Fund for lhe Republ tablished lo deal with problems thai exisl today.
